COLUMBIA — A winter storm forming west of the Rocky Mountains could bring snow flurries to the Columbia area late Tuesday night.
Although mid-Missouri can expect some snow flurries, it is unlikely the area will see any real accumulation over Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, Jayson Gosselin, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Monday morning.
The majority of the snow from this storm system is predicted to affect much of southeastern Missouri starting shortly after noon Tuesday in places such as Cape Girardeau, Farmington and Poplar Bluff, Gosselin said.
St. Louis could see some snow if the storm shifts north, with up to 6 inches in some areas in the western part of the city, he said.
The storm is expected to move across the Midwest throughout the week, with the possibility of 12 to 18 inches of snow in the Northeast on Thursday night and Friday.
